Hands up

"How many Gujarathis & Marwadi's in this class?" asked my lungi clad prof who flaunts a beard and a pony tail. More than 80% of the class raised their hands and i quietly muttered to myself 'God bless me.' His next question was for the minorities. "So how many Maharashtrians & Southies here?" The remaining obediently raised their hands. Prompt came an advice for us, the minors (read the lesser of the two evils) "You'll have to work harder and build your way up the ladder. Your friends who are in majority have a upper hand over you guys when it comes to business. There is something running in their blood i suppose." This statement came for a South Indian himself so it pricked and soothed at the same time.

Welcome to the new world which begins EARLY in the morning i said to myself. My CA Final classes kick started today. After a break from travelling in the Mumbai locals, i have come back to it.

The journey on the path of becoming a CA continues. And this time i will reach there well in time! Good luck to me and all others sailing in the same dwindling boat.

Be quenched in Reason's night,
Till weakness turn to might,
Till what is dark be light,
Till what is wrong be right!
